Porsche Boxster GTS review: 45 facts and highlights

1. Has dual-clutch transmission

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.

2. more cylinders

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 16

3. weight

Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet 2.0 CVT (2014): 1.63kg

4. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 414km/h

5. faster acceleration (0-100)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 2.5s

6. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km

7. Has Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

8. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 1250Nm

9. greater power-to-weight ratio

The power-to-weight ratio is a measurement of the performance of a car, based on the amount of power its engine can produce per kg of weight.
Lotus Exige S Roadster (2014): 224.8hp/kg

10. Has rear-wheel drive

Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

11. Has a rear-view camera

A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.

12. smaller turn radius

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
Smart Passion Cabriolet (2014): 8.4m

13. shorter length

Smart Passion Cabriolet (2014): 2.65m

14. longer wheelbase

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe (2014): 3.32m

15. width

Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 1.21m

16. height

Lotus Exige S Roadster (2014): 1.13m

17. lower coefficient of drag

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.
Lexus IS 250C (2014): 0.29Cd


ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.

19. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe (2014): 1.03m

20. more headroom (rear)

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 983mm

21. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.

22. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 3448l

23. Has air suspension

Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.
